The guide in Yangshuo was rude and unpolite, and also push us to shop at the local store. Never use China Highlights again!

We just came back from an enjoyable trip to China, partly arranged via China Highlights. Everything was great! We visited Guilin/ Li River, Xian, Zhangjiajie, Chengdu, and Lhasa. The guides were local and they were amazing. They were very knowledgeable and accommodating. A special shout out to our Zhangjiajie guide, Summer, and our Chengdu guide, the awesome Aaron. Their English was impeccable. Aaron, also, has a great knowledge of American culture. In the office Robert answered emails promptly and gave us quick assistance when there was a minor problem. We love all the places we visited, in particular the Panda breeding center in Chengdu (Pandas are the cutest animals and one can watch these clumsy animals all day long!), the glass bridge in Zhangjiajie, biking on the city walls of Xian, and the Potala Palace. The accommodations were all really well located and very comfortable. The meal allowance was also sufficient and we had enough to eat and very good food. Overall it was an excellent experience. If we come back to China some day, we would definitely use China Highlights again. Thank you

I think it's important to highlight a great service received by a company and that's why I would like to congratulate China Highlights - China Tour Operator for the excellent service and support they gave to my parents (Jorge & Marcia) before and during their vacations in China. Specially I would like to highlight the work done by Nikki and Sharon, who were able to assist my parents when they had tickets and luggage issues. I think without their support the travel would had been way harder. I'm happy to recommend the company if you need to book train tickets in advance and overseas

We're just home from a most enjoyable holiday, partly arranged via China Highlights. The drivers who met us at various locations were on time and very pleasant, the one in Guilin particularly. The tours were great, small numbers made for good interaction, the Guides were fab - Rico in Beijing, Phoebe in Xi'An and Rosy in Guilin - all had excellent English and were very obliging, happy to help in any way they could. In the office Nico answered emails night and day (not sure when he sleeps!) and a couple of minor problems were sorted out speedily and with ease, nothing was a problem. We'd love to go back to China one day and would have no hesitation in using China Highlights again. Thank you
